A verbally abusive passenger was booted off a JetBlue flight after berating Ivanka Trump, daughter of President-elect Donald Trump, TMZ first reported.

Ivanka – along with her husband, Jared Kushner, three children and extended family – was on a flight leaving out of JFK when the man noticed her during boarding, per TMZ.

In dispute is whether the man yelled or was simply agitated when he said:

"Your father is ruining the country," the unidentified man, holding his son, reportedly said. "Why is she on our flight? She should be flying private."

According to a passenger claiming to be sitting in the row in front of Ivanka, the unruly man was visibly shaking and did not accost Ivanka directly.

That passenger, Marc Scheff, had a different version.

"Oh my god. This is a nightmare," Scheff wrote on Facebook. "They ruin the country now they ruin our flight!"

The Washington Post reported the man's husband, Matt Lasner, tweeted his husband had spotted Ivanka and Kushner and was "was chasing them down to harass them." The tweets have since been deleted, according to the Post.

Scheff also said he heard Ivanka tell her Secret Service team and JetBlue officials she "didn't want to make this a thing."

JetBlue released a statement, picked up by the Post and TMZ, saying the decision to remove the unruly passenger was "not taken lightly."

"If the crew determines that a customer is causing conflict on the aircraft, the customer will be asked to deplane, especially if the crew feels the situation runs the risk of escalation during flight. Our team worked to re-accommodate the party on the next available flight."
